Dear Friends,

As we move into the final month of 2015 and celebrate the holiday season in the comfort of family and friends, let's take a look back on a November to remember. My office continued to fight on behalf of tenants, with programs in collaboration with NYLAG and Housing and Family Services of Greater New York to help residents facing housing issues stay in their homes. We also launched our cooperation with Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City to help young people in our district connect with local mentors. Finally, we brought the community together and helped out families in need provide their families a fine holiday meal with our Thanksgiving Block Party and Turkey Drive.

There's more to come in December! Many exciting programs and events await. Stay tuned to our email alerts and social media feeds to stay on top of what's happening in your community! If you haven't signed up, just click on the link in the top right corner to provide your email address.

Please remember that my office is here to serve you. We are located at 1216 Union Street between Rogers and Nostrand Avenues. Our office hours are 10:00AM-6:00PM, Monday-Friday. If you would prefer to reach us by phone, please call (718) 771-3105. We are here to help.

Many Thanks,
Diana
